I wanted to get a CD together to hand out at the Jam on the River on Memorial Day weekend. I felt like it was never really finished, so I didn't burn any copies. But the more I listened to it on my ipod, the more I liked this collection of songs.
There are a bunch of grooves I made when I first got an Oxygen 8 keyboard. I usually make music with the mouse and computer, so this is some of the first stuff with me "actually" playing an instrument, which often just meant tweaking the mod wheel.
I planned on adding vocals to tracks like Darkest Hemispheres and I've Come to Save the World but I like them this way, and it goes more with the "live" feeling anyway, to just go with what I did in the original session.
There are a few really tight versions of songs with vocals: demons, mineking, i, and dark feast. I love these versions and especially love the bonus mineking beats later in the set. It was really cool because when I was recording vocals to the opening track, a siren went by out the window and it made the perfect intro to the set.
